Why not will

IMG_8356

Why power is what makes things happen not will.

Once you have discovered your ‘why’ power then sure you need willpower.

Your ‘why’ is what lives in the heart, it’s the strong emotion that drives you, it is the reason you will jump out of bed in the morning. It is what others will love or hate about your creations or cause.

If you are asked to run a marathon, but you don’t deep down want to, the willpower will run out, it’s not sustainable. If you are doing a job that you don’t like willpower might keep your head above water, but only for so long. If you are passionate about the job and then the willpower will come to help you be the best not just survive.

If you love doing a thing, then it is easier to create and maintain the willpower that brings about a commitment to your goal or dream. Commitment is essential to turn a dream into reality, just having a cause isn’t enough.

However, ‘Why’ power creates willpower and without it, the willpower fades.

Last minute blog

So today, I’ve had a day that has been one of those days.

Those are the days when you feel like just saying ‘fuck it’ and sitting in front of Netflix.

I normally do this daily blog at around 4pm and seeing as I am just 11 days off from completing a whole year of blogging every day, I seriously do not want to miss one now.

I got home about 7.40pm blog still to do and wanting to go to the gym.

So I opted for the gym, I know for those who know me that’s probably a little hard to believe, but I did 30 minutes on the bike, 15 minutes in the pool and then 10 minutes in the steam room.

It was in the steam room that the mind finally cleared and the energy came back to go home and do the blog.

There are two things I learnt, first when you have a block on something, go do another thing and relax. The second, commitment is about doing things on the hard days, not the easy ones.

Now time for dinner.
